Hey Bill,

You nailed it! Back when I was regularly fishing the Lower Keys for tarpon I often got asked "how far I could cast" and I always responded: "With or Without tarpon..." Rather than practice my casting, which was good, I practiced "steeling my nerves", keeping as calm as I could be and focusing on making a good delivery. That's not easy when a big wad of tarpon are converging on the skiff.

I also kept one eye on the fish and one ear on the guide. Captain Ray Fecher would always be talking to me in calm, low tones, giving advice, directions and always reminding me to stay calm.

Tarpon are the greatest gamefish on the planet.

Dan
